Social media is buzzing with Harper Beckham’s “Blunt-Banged-Bob” mini-me hairstyle that twinned Vogue editor Anna Wintour’s iconic look. Victoria and David Beckham both posted photos on Instagram of Harper and Anna sitting front row at Victoria’s Autumn/ Winter 2019 runway show on February 17, 2019, during London Fashion Week. Harper got her “chic little French bob” with bangs on January 13, 2019, with mom Victoria documenting the haircut on Instagram stories.
On the other side of the pond, on February 12, 2019, Kourtney Kardashian posted an adorable photo of six-year-old Penelope Disick after her first haircut. Interesting enough, Penelope chose a stylish Blunt Banged Bob hairstyle also similar to Harper and Anna Wintour’s short bob style.
Her Kardashian Aunties have owned the stylish bob haircut in the past. Auntie Khloe Kardashian even posted a photo together with Penelope on Instagram bragging their mini-me look with the caption: So basically, P is obsessed with me (jk) lol how FREAKING CUTE is she with her hair cut???!!!?
Harper first cut her long princess hair to a stylish bob back in July 2018. Parents David and Victoria Beckham posted photos of the big event on Instagram. Daddy David didn’t look too thrilled about the event as he posted this photo on Instagram with the caption: “Someone’s happy 😃 & someone’s not so happy ✂️ but I didn’t think it was possible for this little one to look any more beautiful but ♥️”
Mommy Victoria posted photos of her new “mini posh” hairstyle on Instagram with a caption “Hair cut for our baby girl x kisses from Harper x #howchic”. Super cute mini-me style similar to Victoria’s famous graduated bob haircut back in her Spice Girl days.
Six months later on January 13, 2019, Harper stepped up her bob hairstyle with a new haircut opting for a traditional French style bob with heavy bangs. Interestingly Harper (or more likely mom Victoria) chose the exact same Blunt Banged Bob hairstyle Vogue editor and fashion icon Anna Wintour has made her signature look for over 50 years.
According to the Telegraph UK, 69-year-old Wintour hasn’t changed her hairstyle since the age of 15, not even after becoming editor-in-chief of Vogue back in 1988. Rumour has it that style icon Wintour won’t start her working day until her familiar blunt bob is chopped, blown-out and smoothed into non-movable shape by a stylist.
This isn’t the first time Anna Wintour’s Bold Banged Bob has become a fashion trend. At the New York Met Gala 2016 Event, a number of celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, and Michelle Williams had their hair cut especially for the occasion, choosing to go for a Wintour Bob.
It’s no surprise that Harper (and Victoria) would choose to mini-me Anna Wintour’s classic chic bob hairstyle. These two beautiful blonde fashion icons have become buddies sitting front row season after season at mommy Victoria’s runway shows at Fashion Week. Let’s face it, Harper is the only seven-year-old I know that gets to sit next to the most powerful women of fashion!
When writing this post I found some adorable photos of Harper and Anna Wintour sitting front row at Victoria Beckham’s Fashion Week Runway Shows. Here are a few of my favorites!
It will be interesting to see if Harper Beckham decides to own the classic Blunt Banged Bob Anna Wintour hairstyle or to go back to a longer hairstyle where she can go back to french braids she wore during Fall-Winter 2018/19 NYFW.
